olympics thought…

Why are gymnastics coaches so much larger than the gymnasts? Even the men’s teams coaches are bigger.

unnecessary specificity…

Why does Heinz label their bottles of ketchup “TOMATO” ketchup? Is there any other kind of ketchup? I checked a couple of other brands and they all have “TOMATO” on the labels.
